Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will I still be in control of myself?
This is what most people are afraid of. They are terrified that if they really submit to the relaxation of hypnosis and go fully into a trance like state that they will no longer be in control of themselves and can be easily controlled by the person that is hypnotising them. But be assured that you are still fully in control of yourself when you are hypnotised. You are still conscious, but your conscious mind is extremely relaxed. No one can take control of you and make you do stupid things while you’re hypnotised unless you allow it.
2. What happens if I can’t come out of hypnosis?
It’s physically impossible for that to happen, because you are not unconscious at any point during the hypnosis. You will be in a deeply relaxed state but fully conscious and you can come out of that state at any time that you want to. You can also come out of that state when given a verbal cue by the hypnotherapist. Sometimes when you get the verbal cue to come out of your hypnosis you may not want to because the relaxed state you are in feels so good. When that happens it may take you a few minutes to return to your normal awareness but that is only because you want to stay in the relaxed state, not because you are being forced to stay in it or because you can’t come out of it on your own. You are always in control, even when you are deep in a hypnotic state.
3. Is hypnosis real?
Lots of people are sceptical about hypnosis at first, but usually that’s because they don’t have a good understanding of how hypnosis is used for medical and psychological treatments. Hypnosis is not some crazy New Age therapy. It’s a legitimate therapeutic technique that has been used with proven success to treat medical and psychological disorders in millions of people. Anyone can be treated with hypnosis, and in most cases hypnosis is a very effective form of treatment for many different disorders. Hypnosis has a long history of being used to treat illness; it’s not a new or untested therapy
4. How many problems can I cure at once using hypnosis?
Hypnosis isn’t a magic cure that will get rid of all of your problems at once. You will still need to address your medical and psychological problems one at a time, and over the course of several treatments, in order to see results. It’s possible that symptoms of one disorder that mimic symptoms of another disorder might go away with the symptoms of the other disorder but in general you will need to tackle one problem at a time when you’re using hypnosis as a treatment.
5. Is hypnosis safe?
Hypnosis is completely safe. You are aware and in control at every moment and can terminate the session at any time. Hypnosis is not sleep, it is an awake state. You cannot get 'stuck' in a state of hypnosis. You cannot be made to reveal anything you don't want to reveal in fact you could even lie if you wanted to. You cannot be made to do something against your will. There are no drugs and no unpleasant side effects. Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing and enjoyable experience with ZERO risk!
6. How can I Lose Weight with Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis?
When people try to lose weight with traditional methods, they suffer misery and depression caused by the feeling that they are being deprived of the pleasure associated with eating and foods they enjoy. This invariably makes them think of food consistently. The beauty of hypnosis, and the way we use hypnotherapy in particular, is that it removes this feeling of deprivation.
It removes the need, and desire, to eat those foods that you know are no longer helpful for you. You won't need to count calories, or points, use shakes or liquid foods or even take pills or undergo any discomfort. We help you to feel in control of food rather than it controlling you. We help you to eat consciously and to listen to what your stomach tells you rather than your mind. We help you to form new healthy habits that you can maintain. All that you have to do with hypnosis is sit back in a nice comfortable chair and relax. It doesn't get much easier than that.
7. How Does Hypnosis Help Me To Become Slimmer?
There are many habits associated with eating which are controlled by the unconscious mind. Since hypnosis works directly with the unconscious, this method makes sense. We can help you effortlessly transition into a healthy lifestyle, happily feeling in control of your eating and feeling liberated from thinking about food all the time. So naturally hypnosis is the obvious choice for weight loss, permanently and easily.
